Tiny collages…

Untitled Collage




Santa Rosa, California

Colin Talcroft is an artist, photographer, winemaker, beekeeper, avid bird-watcher, and blogger (when he’s not busy translating Japanese financial research into English, his main paying job). He’s also into music, reading, travel, fine food, and serendipitous art… I know him through Facebook, where our interests cross paths on occasion.

Since last summer, Colin’s been playing with acrylic paints, mono-printing and collage. Shown above are a few of his experimental pieces… see more here.
